BELLES RIVES: A NOVELIST’S JEWEL

Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald, known for his four finished novels:

This Side of Paradise, The Beautiful and the Damned, Tender is the Night and above all The Great Gatsby (still an essential master piece made into a film and that influences fashion trends and lifestyle objects).

In 1925 Francis had published The Great Gatsby whilst making several trips to Paris and to one of his favorite spots in the world: the French Riviera. He became great friends with an American expatriate community and other international creatives such as Picasso and Ernest Hemingway.

Francis was also in the heart of the Jazz Age: A movement that emerged with the introduction of mainstream radio at the end of the war.

Francis transferred his passion for the lifestyle he manifested and of the magic of the Jazz Age to his house with a certain heritage for Art Deco. This magical house was based in the French Riviera in the town of Juan les Pins.

Now at present his house, named Belles Rives, has preserved the splendor and heritage that allows us to submerge ourselves and become inspired by its rich heritage.

Higher Poetics truly recommends a stop over to Hôtel Belles Rives… a glass of Champagne, the hard copy of Tender Is the Night and of course a beautiful sunset viewed from the bay.
